Edward House Obituary

Edward House was born July 22, 1942 and died January 3, 2024. He was born in Fulton, New York to the late Pearl & Edward House. Following a long lingering illness he went home to be with his Lord and Savior.

Edward graduated from Phoenix High School where he was involved in football and track. He attended both Roberts Wesleyan College and Yale University. He also served in the U.S. Air Force from 1961 until 1965.

He held many different positions in his lifetime to include: Church and Dwight, Weinberger Church Furniture, Miles Homes and Landstar Trucking. He was also County Legislator for Oswego County serving in Palermo, New York. He was a Sunday School Superintendent, youth leader and Sunday School teacher. He loved serving the Lord.

He loved to travel across the country. He supported the Jewish organization Wings of Eagles in their effort to bring Jewish people back to their homeland. He loved teaching anyone who wanted to learn to count in Chinese. Ed had the greatest smile that would make you feel as ease when you were talking to him. He could converse with all ages from children to adults. He loved people and was always willing to help others in their time of need.

He loved his family dearly. He loved to sing hymns with his wife Linda as they travelled down Route 81. Edward was a prolific reader, he was especially fond of reading the Bible and Louis Lamour books. His favorite actors were John Wayne and Humphrey Bogart. He loved molasses cookies, oatmeal raisin cookies, jelly bellies, and maple walnut ice cream. He loved to watch Syracuse basketball and football games.

I would like to thank everyone at Seneca Hill Manor for the wonderful care they gave my husband, especially the third floor staff during his stay.
